A two minute video recorded Mohamad calling BN Youths to take action and counter “slanderous allegations” by the opposition media and to convince voters to support the ruling government.
“If there is a coffee shop disseminating slanderous statements against the government, you (BN Youth) storm into the coffee shop, overturn their tables… If you’re picked up by the police, I will bail you out,” he had reportedly said.

SEREMBAN: The state Pakatan Harapan has lodged two police reports against Negri Sembilan Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan over what it believes was an incitement to violence.
The first report was lodged by Kuala Pilah Pakatan chief Kamarulzaman Kamdias, claiming that the words used by Mohamad during an Umno event in Rantau Eco Park on Monday were provocative.
Kamarulzaman in his report said that Mohamad should not have uttered such words, which called on Umno Youth members to flip tables at coffeeshops in their bid to counter lies and slander by the Opposition.
“As Mentri Besar, he should not be using such words.
“He can be held responsible if there is chaos or fights during the general election,” he said, adding that the police should investigate the matter.
In a second report, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia member Mohd Firdaus Mohd Rashid also urged the police to probe the matter.
“The police should probe this as the MB seems to be giving approval to youths to behave like gangsters,” he said.
Mohamad when met later said those accusing him of promoting gangsterism had got it all wrong.
He said those who felt that he was advocating violence should have looked at his body language at the event and consider the fact that he spoke in the open.
“It was only a figure of speech when I told them that they should go ahead and flip tables at coffeeshops when rebutting slander and lies spread by Opposition supporters.

Negri’s Mohamad Hasan to contest Umno No. 2 post
NEGRI Sembilan Umno liaison committee chairman Mohamad Hasan is the first to announce his intention to contest for the Umno deputy president’s post.
The former Negeri Sembilan menteri besar said he made the decision after lengthy deliberation over whether to continue in politics or retire for good.
The Umno Supreme Council elections for the top posts, including that of the president, deputy president and three vice-presidents, will be held on June 30.
“There is also a lot of pressure and support for me to contest the party’s president post. But (after consideration), I think it’s better for me to contest the (deputy president) post to help the party president, who will be elected soon.
“I hope no one will misinterpret this decision, as my intention is only to serve the party and society, as (Umno) is currently drowning,” he was quoted as saying by the New Straits Times today.

Apologise for ‘table-flipping speech’, ex-servicemen tell Negri MB
A GROUP of retired police and military servicemen want Negri Sembilan Menteri Besar Mohamed Hassan to apologise over a speech they allege was inciting youth to “take physical action” against those who slander the government.
The National Patriots Association (Patriot) president Brig Gen (rtd) Mohd Arshad Raji said that if politicians continue to make inflamatory speeches, then the next election will not be free of violence.
“Regardless of whether there is a police report made against Hassan, the association urges the police to investigate the speech and to take whatever action permissible within the law,” he said in a statement today.
Arshad said the video showed how uncultured and uncivilised Hassan could be, of wanting to remain in power, not by peaceful, democratically acceptable means but by inciting and propagating violence against those who criticised the government.
“His conduct is unbecoming of a politician and a state leader.
“Such gangster-like conduct is totally wrong and unacceptable in our Malaysian culture.
“His speech wasn’t well received by the public at large and many who viewed the video had expressed scorn and disgust.”
Negri MB says ‘joking’ about violent reprisals against slander (VIDEO)
KUALA LUMPUR, March 20 — Negri Sembilan Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan reportedly said he was only joking when he called on Barisan Nasional (BN) Youth in Rembau to take “physical action” against any business premises seen slandering the government.
English daily theSun reported that Mohamad, who was speaking at the Majlis Pelancaran Briged Gempur Pemuda Umno Rembau on Sunday, said his words were taken out of context and was meant to “inspire confidence”.
“Those were just words to inspire confidence among the youth. It’s not like I want them to carry out these actions for real. I always joke around, you can ask all the reporters that cover my press conferences,” he reportedly said.
